Heat Death


When Eddie Simms skipped his high school class to smoke behind the gym, he had no way of knowing that he was in the worst possible place at the worst possible time. High above him, a battle raged on an alien scout ship which had been monitoring the area-a mutiny driving the crew to a bloody clash which left only a few critically injured members alive. At least until the ship plummeted to Earth, destroying the gym and the surrounding area.

Miraculously, Eddie had survived the impact, although not in any physically recognizable way. His shattered skeleton, glowing with strange alien radiation, recombined and rose to its feet. Flames burst along every surface of the bones as the air reacted with the power glowing from them. Eddie regained consciousness inside his reanimated skeleton and marveled at his new appearance.

Then, being a teenage comic book fan (and vaguely remembering something from Astronomy about suns exploding), he grabbed a piece of the alien wreckage that roughly resembled a scythe and decided he would become a superhero.

Heat Death has been fighting evil and inadvertently terrifying the innocent ever since.
